JO plays for the celtics and Dampier plays for the bobcats

and we never really had an enforcer last season...evans wasnt himself....the only person i can see stepping up is kleiza or caldy...they both seem to have a lil fire in em...

Jack or Kleiza. They're both tough-minded and competitive.

Meh, just give me 10 tough basketball players and I'll be happy. This isn't hockey where you have designated roles.

No, but it'd be nice to have a guy step up and show some testicular fortitude when one of his teammates gets punked.

Jack will stand up for a teammate. He won't start a brawl but he'll get in someones face and imo so would Kleiza.

Good example Jeff. Jack would definitely step up to defend a teammate. And I'm glad we got Kleiza, since he will do the same (Denver experience lol). I just don't want a repeat of the Paul Pierce incident when no one stepped up to defend our ex-star player.

I'd rather have the entire team then just one guy though personally. When you have that one guy and he's really your only bad ass and he get ejected I wonder what happens to the mentality of your team mates?

They get inspired by his refusal to put up with any BS?

And in a perfect world - yeah, the whole team would stand up for each other, but we've seen time and time again over the last how many seasons that never really happens with any of these guys.

That's the hope Acie.

And yep, that's this teams problem. Soft mentally. Maybe it's an organizational thing.

The worst part of the clip? The only person who gave a shit was the coach.
